From Dinard to the Cap Fréhel
Dinard experienced a huge change in the middle of the 19th century by becoming a seaside resort. Once a simple fishing village, Dinard attracted the first bathers with its exceptional coastal landscapes. In 1958, the first bathhouse of Dinard appeared. Dinard owes its success to its English community, which has brought many activities such as golf or horse racing, etc. Villas appeared along the coast during the Roaring Twenties. Today, we can observe them while walking in the city.
The Cap Fréhel is a wonderful ornithological reserve along the Emerald Coast, which separates the bay of Saint-Brieuc from the bay of Saint-Malo. Composed of shale and pink sandstone, the 70 meters high cliffs offer a spectacular sea view. The lighthouse that overcomes these magnificent cliffs was built in the 1950s and is among the 5 most powerful French lighthouses. It can be visited from April to early November. Once at the top, you can see Fort la Latte. A hour and a half walk allows you to reach these two exceptional places. Fort la Latte is a medieval castle, classified as a historic monument. Tours and events are organized all year long.
